Today’s Forecast:
December starts today... but we're going to feel more like the end of September!

Sunny skies, light winds, and dry skies are expected across the region with very warm temperatures. We'll be close to record heat in Colorado Springs and Pueblo, but we should stay a couple of degrees shy in both areas.

The winds are light today, but very dry air and the warmth are going to elevate fire danger across the region.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 69; Low: 38. Sunny, warm, and dry today with light winds. The current record for today is 71 degrees.

PUEBLO: High: 71; Low: 28. Sunny and very warm today with light winds and dry skies. The current record for today is 76 degrees.

CANON CITY: High: 72; Low: 41. Sunny and warm today with a light breeze out of the west. We'll stay dry with elevated fire danger.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 61; Low: 36. Sunny and mild today with light winds and dry skies.

TRI-LAKES: High: 60s; Low: 30s. Sunny and warm with dry skies and light winds.
